Each week I will post a new activity on here. Each day I will set certain tasks around the given picture, building up to a written piece and editing at the end of the week. When writing, try to include all the features we have looked at throughout Year 6. To help you in this, I have included the end of year expectations and key MC Grammar songs to help you remember. I will also uploaded specific areas of SPaG that will help you.

Creative writing

 

This week we are going to do what we (mainly me!) always said we wanted to do. Writing for a purpose is an important skill but sometimes having a little fun with writing is equally important. This week we are going to get creative, a bit like our class book, you will have the freedom to take this story wherever you want. Ideally boys (you know who you are!!) not down a Fortnite path. There will be only one rule- YOU MUST USE EVERY WORD FROM THE LIST IN YOUR STORY. There are 100 words to include.Creative writing is meant to be fun and enjoyable so let's see where this takes you. You don't have to use them in order so you can write a short story about anything really. I would suggest aiming to include 20 words each day this week- remember not every sentence will use one of these words so that will be quite a bit each day. 

Year 6 spelling list

Below is an online dictionary that will help you if you do not know the meaning of a word. It is very important that you use unfamiliar words in the correct context. 

There are 100 words to include so this is not a small task, try to make your story have beginning , middle and an end. Below I have added a story mountain that you may find useful (particularly if you're not sure where to start or where to take your story)

 

As a teacher, reading 17 pieces of writing around the same theme can make it hard to see individual creativity. This week I am expecting 17 very different stories so I would appreciate it if you email me them in to read when they are finished. Please send them to dg@stmarysmalton.co.uk

Remember to proof read them first! laugh
